You're a broken thing
Your cracks are showing through
Your best attempts
At making nice with the world
So keep on dreaming
Cause someday soon the things that keep you up late
Will fade away
Or so I've heard

We're only honest when we're sleeping
We're lying wide awake and dreaming
Wishing that we're with someone else
This bed’s as cold as hell
When you're lying next to me.

It's a twisted game
That we cannot repeat
Hopes that never seem to resonate
Spin the finger of blame
It's always on the heart
that kept on beating
While the other pulled away

We're only honest when we're sleeping
We're lying wide awake and dreaming
Wishing that we're with someone else
This bed’s as cold as hell
When you're lying next to me

The ceiling paints a picture
And everything is turning our world around
Amidst the chaos in the mirror
Lies the reasoning

We're only honest when we're sleeping
We're lying wide awake and dreaming
Wishing that we're with someone else
This bed’s as cold as hell

We're only honest when we're sleeping
We're lying wide awake and dreaming
Wishing that we're with someone else
This bed’s as cold as hell
When you're lying next to me
